Check out a story in The Capital that lays out the arguments police and the bar owners made to the control board before its members deliberated.

ACME is very lucky that they're closed for only 2 weeks and fined only 6K. ACME should keep in mind 2 young people died tragically due to their incompetence. Time and time again I observe various bars throughout Annapolis continually allow people to drink too much and don't shut them off. Unfortunately issues like these don't get resolved until a tragedy occurs.

I agree, I think the fine was insignificant to the loss that occurred. Very unfortunate.
